Guess what's closing? Again. Krave, the LGBT nightclub in its third home since leaving the Miracle Mile Shops and then Neonopolis in Downtown Vegas, plans to close at the Tommy Wind Theatre on July 27.
Owner Sia Amiri says he has a new concept planned for the LGBT community but isn't ready to release plans yet.
Just last month, the new LGBT club Liaison opened inside the former temporary home of Drai's After Hours at Bally's Las Vegas. Amiri says, "I've welcomed new gay clubs in the community, but these new clubs try to emulate what Krave used to be and I have never perceived them to be a determining factor in my decision to close Krave. Instead, I am so excited about my new concept that I need to be very focused on it."
When Krave moved to Downtown Vegas last June, plans called for the world's largest gay nightclub that was supposed to open on New Year's Eve inside Neonopolis but in reality. The club only lasted two months, closing after the state discovered it didn't have a sales tax permit. Following that, efforts to revive the club, and sister location Drink & Drag, hinged on the background of owner Kelly Murphy, Amiri's former business partner when the club was at the Miracle Mile Shops, dooming both to darkness.
